VOICES is a magazine made by volunteers from all over Europe and hosted by “Volunteers Centre Skopje”. This organisation is a non-governmental youth organization created in 2006 by former EVS volunteers. The main goal of the organization is to give non-formal educational possibilities to young people in different fields, in local and international level; to promote the idea of volunteerism and to connect young people without reference to their nationality, religion, political, economical or social status. Our aim is to develop a multicultural civil society, to reinforce the existing democratic structure, to support young people in developing their individual abilities and skills, and to foster closer cooperation among young people.
Volunteer Centre Skopje has the role of an recognized and influential actor and partner in society that offers equal opportunities and approaches to improve the living standards of young people.
VCS Skopje is an active provider of information and opportunities for volunteering and non-formal education, both locally and internationally, and has taken an active role in bringing to the use of European funds and programs to youth and their involvement in decision-making and youth information.
